 PHYSICS SEMINAR - “On-Demand Superconducting Nanoelectronics” by Dr. Josh Veazey, Visiting Assistant Professor, Physics Department, Hope College

"The study of one-dimensional superconductivity (that is, superconductivity in very thin nanowires) is of broad fundamental and practical significance. The behavior of Cooper pairs and electrons at and near the superconducting regime in 1D is driven in part by physics not fully understood.  In this talk, I will discuss a new platform for creating superconducting nanoelectronic devices in an altogether new type of material: the interface of two otherwise-insulating oxides, LaAlO3 and SrTiO3. Despite the rich physics, device creation is remarkably simple and customizable. A conducting atomic force microscope actively “sketches” the nanoelectronic devices into the material, virtually like a pencil on paper."
